Transvaginal, Evisceration, Prolapse


Vaginal evisceration is a surgical emergency. It's a rare but potentially fatal disorder. Only a few examples of transvaginal omental evisceration have been reported worldwide, however no evidence of post-trauma abdominal evisceration has been found. Vaginal evisceration in premenopausal women has been recorded infrequently compared to postmenopausal women and it has been linked to sexual and obstetric trauma. We presented a case of a premenarchal female who came with transvaginal omental evisceration after a blunt abdominal trauma and discussed the treatment choices for this uncommon surgical emergency.
